RELAX. UNWIND. LET GO.
Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
As a massage therapist I help people relax, unwind and let go of body tensions and stresses, reminding you of your potential to move freely and gracefully. Body awareness is greatly enhanced and tense muscles are soothed. Bodywork addresses chronic tensions (patterns), stimulating the regrowth of healthy tissues and the circulation of fluids.
As a intuitive healer I help people to live without limitations. Deep report and a foundation of trust is built to create a powerfully positive container for exponential self growth. Often, after a bodywork session, clients report lingering feelings of inspiration, completion and fulfillment.
A great massage is never one modality. A great massage is the result of a lifetime of experience, in which a deep relationship of appropriate tools are acquired. For me, my experiences have shown me how to intuit clients needs with more accuracy, using the right tools at the right time.
My bodywork sessions are a blend of psycho-somatic methods and techniques I have been formally taught. These include: Circulatory (Swedish), deep tissue, lymphatic drainage, cupping, acupressure, myo-facial release, aromatherapy, reflexology, sensory repatterining, passive joint mobilization, trepidation and applied physiology. More metaphysical techniques include: Cranial-Sacral Therapy, NLP, Polarity Therapy, and Medical Qigong

ARE YOU AN ATHLETE?
Athletes at all levels benefit from massage: Bodywork can and should be an important part of your training. Virtually every ache, pain, or injury connected with training can be helped or prevented through properly applied massage techniques.
Your highest potential: to compete at your highest potential, your body must be able to flow—uninhibited—through any given motion a sport requires. Any inhibition can cause a drop in performance; several small muscular problems scattered throughout the body may work together to destroy one’s freedom of movement.
Bodywork gives an edge: Bodywork stimulates circulation, breaks up scar tissue, relaxes muscle spasm, reduces swelling and relieves pain. Sports massage can speed recovery from injury and helps to prevent muscular injuries. It reduces the strain and discomfort that comes with training, decreasing recovery time and allowing you to train more consistently. Bottom line: receiving regular bodywork leads to increased performance.
